All sounds are composed from a NASA Atlas V recording.
The Atlas V family, which includes the flight-proven Atlas V 400 and 500 series, are the latest evolutionary versions of the Atlas launch system. Atlas V uses a standard common core booster™ (CCB), up to five strap-on solid rocket boosters (SRB), an upper-stage Centaur in either the Single-Engine Centaur (SEC) or the Dual-Engine Centaur (DEC) configuration, and one of several payload fairings (PLF). A three-digit (XYZ) naming convention is used for the Atlas V 400 and 500 series.
This recording is to celebrate one year NASA’s mission OSIRIS-REx.
The OSIRIS-REx was launched on 8 September 2016. It has been traveling for more than a billion kilometers though space to grab a sample of dust from the asteroid 101955 Bennu. NASA is hoping to find the origins of this universe in these molecules. The OSIRIS-REx will take the sample and send it to Earth in 2021. The chip containing art will stay on the probe. On this chip works of sound art and sound research of the composer-sonologist Roland Kuit. The OSIRIS-REx will stay in space as a time & art capsule. This work is a journey and an ode to the rocket Atlas V.
